A friend of mine has this tool but he doesn’t know what it’s called or what it’s specifically used for. I cant seem to find it anywhere online by searching random things. It’s not sharp or anything. I have no clue what it is. Help me.
Thank you.

My guess is a tool for prying lids from 5gal and other size buckets.

Looks like a kitchen gadget of some kind.

I would guess it is for removing weed between tiles or cobblestones in driveways or terrasses

Wrong angle for weeds, paint cans would only need one tooth, the closest one to the handle.
Could be for cutting rigid foam insulation but a bit short and course toothed for that.

First post and the name of the tool maker is obscured – phishing expedition?

Lower right corner of the original post has a little ‘flag’ link. The thing is, it’s just one post. I’d be more inclined to flag it if it was the usual, identical comment in 15 places.

You mean the the ‘flag’ link is not visible? I can see it. It’s gray, but it’s there.

Not a tool, more of an adjustable latch. A bolt goes through the hole just below the orange handle as a pivot, What sort of loop the teeth engage…....maybe a 3 speed….?
